std::geometric_distribution<IntType>::geometric_distribution - std::geometric_distribution<IntType>::geometric_distribution


geometric_distribution() : geometric_distribution(0.5) {} (1) (since C++11)
explicit geometric_distribution( double p ); (2) (since C++11)
explicit geometric_distribution( const param_type& params ); (3) (since C++11)

Constructs a new distribution object. (2) uses p as the distribution parameter. (3) uses params as the distribution parameter.


p - the p distribution parameter (probability of a trial generating true)
params - the distribution parameter set


Requires that 0 < p < 1
